But did our Fed cause it? Did the Obama admin cause it by announcing a cut back in deportations? By pushing an immigration reform bill that rewards illegals? Did Obama and company give a false hope? Our government all but invited them.

Is there proof that our BP did what they are accused of or is this just people trying to force us to grant green cards? I refuse to believe any such allegations without absolute proof.

Agreed since illegal aliens ARE liars and sneaks. Tho ANY BP agent acting bad does need to be nailed to the wall.

Agreed. The word of a criminal is as worthless as counterfeit money. Without proof, I will call BS on the story. If there is proof the guards need to be hammered for it.

They way I see it they will just give the kids some Federal id's, grant them American citizenship. Soon they will be 18 and they will be taught how to vote (D). So no doubt they will let them all in, give them all free education, feed them, cloth them and house them and if their family needs money then we support them because its the right thing to do. Anyone who goes against them will be deemed evil.

So, don't fight it just cover the cost, the government officials would need to pay for their own security, go on Affordable Healthcare and stop these free pensions and can be set up with a 401k or an IRA, pay into social security like the rest of us because its the right thing to do.

I'm guessing you're being sarcastic about people being against illegal aliens is "evil".

From what I'm reading the coyotes and the crime rings in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras are causing the influx by spreading false rumors about our immigration laws. Why? Because they make tons of cash off the parents of these kids coming over in mass. It's a issue where the international community (in the America's especially) has to get involved to put pressure on these countries to deal with the growing crime rings. The problem can't be solved at our boarder. It has to be stopped before it starts...down in Central America.

Where would these alleged crimes rings get the idea to do this? Why right now, why the timing? I think it as likely that the criminals in office spread a little disinformation to create an event and distraction from other issues that they are being called on. Nothing would surprise me about the Obama admin. I don't think there is a low they won't stoop to.
